|Abstract||GdNi5 nanoparticles and GdNi5/Gd2O3 nanocapsules (with GdNi5 core and Gd2O3 shell) were prepared by arc-discharge technique under different hydrogen partial pressure. The GdNi5 nanoparticles show irregular spherical shape and have a size distribution of 10-50 nm with an average diameter of 15 nm. In comparison, the GdNi5/Gd2O3 nanocapsules present spherical morphology and show a size distribution of 10-100 nm with an average diameter of 60 nm. Under a magnetic field change of 50 kOe, the maximum magnetic entropy change of GdNi5 nanoparticles is 13.5 J/(kg K) at 5 K, while the corresponding value of the GdNi5/Gd2O3 nanocapsuels is only 5.7 J/(kg K) at 31 K. The origin of the large magnetic entropy change of GdNi5 nanoparticles is ascribed to its high atomic moments and small anisotropy energy barrier induced by its small particle size.|
